In certain circumstances, you can have longer to pay.
  • You may be asked to provide detailed financial information, including monthly expenses, banking information, and other pertinent information to determine your ability to pay the liability.
  • While establishing payment arrangements, you must be in tax filing compliance before the terms of the agreement will be in effect.
  • When making full or partial payments to the department, always include the tax identification number on the check or money order.
  • All payments must be made on time and no future liabilities may arise during the repayment period.
  • If you cannot make a payment as scheduled, contact the department and advise a collections representative when you will be making the payment.
  • If the terms of the arrangements are not kept, the department will consider enforcement action, such as the filing of a tax lien or levying bank accounts or other assets. 
  • Depending upon the amount you owe and the length of time it will take to repay your liability, a tax lien may be filed.
      • Once the account is paid in full, the lien will be released.
      • In order to expedite the release of a lien, all payments within 60 days of payoff must be by cash or certified funds.
      • If payment is made by personal check, it could delay the release of lien by up to 60 days.
